When Greenpeace climbers managed to unfurl a giant banner to the right of Abraham Lincoln’s face on Mt. Rushmore yesterday, we tuned in to see the fruits of their work having absolutely no idea what they went through to get it up there.
A new video is up showing us some behind-the-scenes footage and the rough conditions the participants encountered. At one point, you’ll witness one climber get tossed around the side of the mountain as the winds pick up his side of the banner like a sail. At that point, I guess you just hold on.
We’re also happy to report that all of climbers yesterday have been released from jail. Obviously, there will probably be some stiff fines and community service from this one. Check it out below:
